United Kingdom lawmakers vote to delay Brexit past March deadline

This time Parliament set out to decide on revoking Article 50 which prompts the government to request permission from the European Union to delay the quickly approaching Brexit deadline only 15 days away.

Markets largely expected MPs to vote in favor of a Brexit delay headed into today's session. These included seven Cabinet ministers. Amendment H, which called for an extension to hold a second referendum, was called on first but only 84 MPs voted in favor while 334 opposed.

The cross-party amendment, tabled by Labour's Hilary Benn and Yvette Cooper and Tory Sir Oliver Letwin, would force a series of votes to indicate MPs' preferences. "Maybe I shouldn't let you do it, I'll just get you in trouble".

After Mrs May's Withdrawal Agreement was voted down for the second time on Tuesday, a vote on Wednesday saw the lower house also block leaving without a deal, and now the Commons have also voted to delay Brexit day as well.

It says if a deal is passed by then, the government will seek an extension of Article 50, the withdrawal clause of the European Union charter the United Kingdom triggered in March 2017, until June 30.

The group released an album, No Tourists , in November and was set to embark on a United States tour in May. "RIP KEITH FLINT. A full hearing will be held in the summer, and the death remains under investigation before toxicology reports are completed.

Meanwhile, EU officials are leaned toward a longer extension but opened to a shorter one.

"But I gave the prime minister my ideas on how to negotiate it and I think you would have been successful".

"But it is clear the House of Commons has to find a consensus around something, and if it is not the Prime Minister's deal, I think it will be something that is much less to the taste of those of the hard Brexit wing of my party".

"But I think we also have to explore other options for Parliament to express a view about how we resolve this impasse".

May has given lawmakers in her party a free vote and investors expect parliament will vote against a no-deal Brexit.
